Whether you regularly lead trainings, or just need to share your ideas in small team meetings, being able to effectively communicate information is an essential skill for both work and life. Through this experiential training series, you’ll strengthen your public speaking skills, harness your ability to persuasively communicate your ideas, and better understand how to connect and affect your listeners. Each week, we’ll explore a different sub-topic in this category. Each training can be attended individually, regardless of whether you’ve attended the others. This training will be interactive and experiential, so it is best to join by computer with video. Weekly sub-topics include:
Weekly sub-topics include:
1. Connect & Affect: Getting others on board with you is a valuable skill. This workshop will focus on tools that you can use to harness your persuasive power and build genuine rapport with your audience.
2. Effectively Organize Your Information: Sometimes, relaying the facts isn’t enough. This workshop will focus on tools that you can use to best cluster and present your information for buy-in and engagement.
3. Anxiety & Distraction Busters: Often, anxiety and other distractors can get in our way when we’re trying to relay the information. Whether this manifests in nervousness before a training, or imposter syndrome when sharing an idea – knowing how to shut down and manage these elements is key. This workshop will focus on tools that you can put in place to feel more confident in your work.
4. Taking The Floor: This workshop brings elements from the last workshop together (but can still be attended alone). We’ll collate important skills and self-resourcing that you can use to confidently speak, share your ideas, and disagree with others.
